hat are the first words that come to your mind when someone mentions a wonderful town of Cancun in Mexico? Vacation, relaxation, beaches, cocktails, sun, crystal blue sea, snorkeling? You would be right but there is also another side of Cancun that is increasingly gaining on popularity and it is called dental tourism.
Mexico, in general, has become a quite popular medical destination particularly with the U.S. and Canadian residents because of the country’s reasonable proximity which translates into less travelling time and lower traveling costs. Actually, the Mexican government projects that the number of medical tourists from North America will grow to 650,000 in the next four years. The reasons why medical tourism and, in particular, dental tourism have been flourishing in Mexico are many.
Primarily, it is about affordability. Dental practices in Cancun offer dental treatments that are up to 80% lower than those in the U.S. and Canada. Not to mention that Mexican dentists accept patients without any dental insurance plans.
The second reason is availability and efficiency. Dental treatments in Cancun have been improved and made available under one roof which saves the patient multiple trips. As for efficiency, the majority of procedures are adapted to fit the patient’s timeline. For instance, an average dental implant procedure lasts up to seven days. Treatment plans are devised in line with the patient’s needs, budget and available time while not compromising on the quality of dental work.
The North American dentists no longer have the monopoly on high quality dental work because dentistry is considered one of the most privileged professions in Mexico and the Mexican dentists take great pride in their work. For instance, dentists at Cancun Dental Specialists are all USA board certified (patients are free to check their credentials) and they offer a ten-year-guarantee on their dental work.
The technology and materials used by dentists in Cancun don’t lag behind their North American counterparts. Furthermore, patient care often extends beyond the walls of a dental facility. Some clinics provide pick-up and drop-off services from and to your hotel, provided that the hotel is located in Cancun.
We shouldn’t forget that Mexicans are also known for their hospitality and dentists in Cancun are no different. They are professional, approachable and friendly, and they speak fluent English. Add to that beauty of Cancun’s scenery and the calming and relaxing environment of the Caribbean and you can easily conclude why so many Americans and Canadians are flocking to this part of the world for dental treatments.
